    8x8 LO of my Mom holding my DD Rachel just after she was born.

    My Mom passed away 15 years ago, and I was really missing her this Mother's Day- so as a tribute to her I did this LO on Mom's Day- LOVE YOU MOM!

    Papers are DCWV, prima flowers (from a swap) and SIzzix lg. daisy, printing on vellum over patterned paper for the journaling, heat shaped pewter brad (from a swap). Sketch was from Page Maps.

    Christi I really like the colors you used. Usually you see the tans but those greys really are nice together and I like the way you journaled down the side and wow all that on a 8x8.

    What a lovely tribute to your mom. I had tears in my eyes when you said, "Love you mom". I put that on some of my LO's of my Dad because I really do miss him a lot.

    Countryrose- I understand & it's good to know it's not just me. I go through bouts of missing both my Mom & Dad something fierce, and get on a crying jag. Usually Christmas is the worst, but it can hit anytime...

    Must tell you I LOVE this LO!!!
    How awesome.
    Christi, I think your Mom is very happy with the memory you have created for your DD's children. Now when you get your hands on you grandchild for the first time get a photo and do it the same. What a loving and wonderful memory. Thank you so much for sharing!!

    Thanks guys- I am going to try to find a nice pic of my Dad and do the same on Father's Day.

    Might be the beginning of a new tradition for me.
